Sometimes, the PDF converter make a "picture" at 96 dpi off the parts off the doc ( a frame, table or even the complete document) who contains elements who can not been converted to PDF. Transparency is the most likely cause for this . Then your text is in pixels at 96 dpi and looks crispy.


I originally created my document using OpenOffice. During the riff raff IP
wars, I converted to LibreOffice. My document is in ODT format and looks
good with a little tweaking (and learning curve built-in). I also created
all of my pictures (inserted into the document) in OpenOffice as XCF
initially .. and inserted them into the doc as JPG.

When using OpenOffice and following this procedures, my PDF export showed
all text and pictures with crystal clarity. However, upon converting to
LibreOffice, while my doc looks good as ODT, when I export ... all the text
is crisp while the pictures are fuzzy comparatively.

I suspect this is a user issue. I just don't know which use issue it is.
Please advise/help.

PS For grins, I've cut and pasted XCF into the ODT and exported to PDF with
same result. Similarly, I converted XCF to GIF and JPG with same result. It
is apparent I'm clueless.
